The forum is up, and a few of the players are reading over the human background story and the updates that are being posted, so not a lot happening on the forum that most people can see.
However on the hidden board for the GM's there is an influx of activity, we are currently discussing how the encounter system shall work, which is the key to the whole system so it's taking a little time to perfect, mostly to avoid any "taking the pee" type of gamers wrecking the system for others.
The rule book has came to a screatching holt at present due to being Sick, so estimates of having a system running by end of June is looking bleak, the ambition was there but the body was not willing.
Advancements in other mechanics have came along nicely, my main focus has been on how the Councils interact with each other and with the commoners below them. It's been difficult so far, especially when working with three different races that each have their own way of operating their unique councils.
Multiple Taverns have been decided upon to allow certain types of characters interaction before encounters and to build up friendships ingame.
Map mechanics are still on the drawing board as they tie in closely with the encounter system, but initial thoughts are swaying towards allowing players to compete for their own chunk of dirt, leading to numerous interesting outcomes.
It's now public that Human Lords will be contending politically or physically for the Throne, while dealing with the issues of the other races.
Hope this gives you a taste of what is coming, the GM's are starting to get rather reved about the system and can't say I blame them, it's an exciting time if all goes to plan this system will be able to run nation wide.
